I have had Botox before and had an allergic reaction. Dysport has been very gentle. No problems. But I don't feel the numbness I felt with Botox. I can still feel the muscles moving in the crows feet area. I had 120 units and 3 point injections for my first time.
How much Dysport to treat crow's feet?
The amount of Dysport used to treat an area can vary by individual, but I would say I more commonly use around 60 units total to treat just the crow's feet area. I would consider 120 units a large dose to treat only the crow's feet.
Dysport for the crows feet.
The standard dose for Dysport for crows feet in my practice is 25-30 units per eye for a total of 50-60 units. As other docs have noted I have not seen a true allergic reaction to Botox either and I agree you should investigate those symptoms to see if they were from something else. I am happy you have found an alternative to the Botox, but 120 units is a large amount around the eyes only.
Dysport for Crows feet
The first point I would make is that I have never seen or heard about a true allergic reaction to Botox. I would encourage that you explore this further to determine whether a true allergic reaction was present: global skin rash, airway symptoms etc. Regarding Dysport, the average dosing I recommend in the crows feet is 50 units or 25 units per side. A higher dose may be used in some patients. 120 units of Dysport to the crows feet alone is very high.
